By improve friendship with their squadmates, the player can improve their effectiveness in battle.[9]

Multiplayer Modes

Annihilation Mode

New online multiplayer mode that is 4 vs 4. Teams eliminate groups of Titans to earn the highest score within a set time limit. Team members are indicated by the bluish line that connects player characters. Attacking the same Titan together leads to a "Chain Bonus," rewarding bonus points for the kill. Players can earn double the points for killing Titans in the short amount of time before the match draws to a close.[12]

Items are altered for this mode to affect the players. Paint grenades can blur the opposing team's vision, stun grenades can inhibit them temporarily, and a resurrection item is available.[citation needed]

In-game communication is limited to character gestures and preset lines from the anime and manga during the lobby screen between matches.[12] Players can customize the icon that hovers above their player character head.[citation needed]

Co-op Play
